    in case the movie itself is larger than 4.38 Gb, it will compress the movie so that it will fit one disc. You will probably not be able to see any difference in the image quality compared to the original, if you do a "movie-only" backup.
    If the movie fits the disc without compression, then DVD Shrink just strips all the unwanted stuff away and leaves the movie as it is, ready for you to burn it the disc.
